The Spectrum Group partners with Biogal-Galed Labs to distribute Canine VacciCheck™ to Veterinarians, Shelters and Kennels in the U.S.

VacciCheck provides rapid, affordable, in-house antibody results in only 21 minutes

The Spectrum Group, a global leader in veterinary diagnostic and treatment solutions for allergy (SPOT Test) and recurrent bacterial infections (becSCREEN™), has announced its partnership with Biogal-Galed Labs to bring Biogal’s Canine VacciCheck™ to the U.S. pet market.

The Canine VacciCheck kit is a single diagnostic test that evaluates the presence or absence of antibodies to three core vaccines, eliminating the possibility of over vaccination.  Within 21 minutes, VacciCheck measures the current vaccine antibody levels of canine parvovirus, distemper and infectious hepatitis-adenovirus type 2 viruses, to determine if a booster is required.

 

VacciCheck’s unique ImmunoComb® technology makes it a quick, simple and affordable dot ELISA titer test to quantitatively check for all three core vaccines.  This is carried out as a single test in a vet clinic, veterinary lab, animal shelter or boarding facility and can provide results while the patient is present.

 

“As pet advocates and partners with the veterinary, rescue and boarding communities, we see this as an ideal opportunity to provide the industry with a product that assists in reducing over-vaccination of dogs and the potential for adverse reactions,” said Mervyn Levin, President of the Spectrum Group.  “VacciCheck is the only in-house, rapid response titer test that can check for the three core vaccines in a single test.”

 

Levin said in addition to preventing over-vaccination, VacciCheck can help determine the vaccination status of a dog with unknown history.  Similarly, it may be utilized to determine if puppies have received adequate immunity from vaccination protocol as well as those with genetic predisposition to immunity.

 

VacciCheck has been described by Prof. Ronald Schultz of the University of Wisconsin -Madison’s School of Veterinary School of Medicine as “a cost-effective, user-friendly and expedient titer test.”  A 12-test kit costs $240 for veterinarians.

 

Levin said shelters and rescues should also consider keeping VacciCheck on hand in case a breakout of parvo, distemper or hepatitis occurs.  VacciCheck rapidly and affordably tests populations that are susceptible to or protected from these diseases. This allows many animals to live that might otherwise have been euthanized due to unknown antibody status and those without antibodies to be isolated from the population.

 

For more information about VacciCheck, including purchases and video demonstrations, please visit www.vaccicheck.com.  The site also contains helpful links to organizations currently benefiting from the use of the product.

Holiday Hazards To Watch For: Protect Your Dogs! A Guest Blog by Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Hospital

 

It’s a wonderful time of year, full of fun, festive decorations, family and your canine family members as well! But this can also be a dangerous time of year for dogs. While it is an urban myth that Poinsettia are the most dangerous holiday item for dogs, there are actually many more toxic holiday hazards you need to watch for. The emergency veterinarians at VRCC Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Hospital (www.vrcc.com) share with us one case and then the top things for you to keep an eye on in your holiday home.

 

 

 

Nicholas is a Bernese Mountain dog and you see his two x-rays after ending up in the E.R. at VRCC.  He ate about 15 feet of Christmas garland, which you can see on the x-ray in the light area under the ribs and to the right of the spine.  The garland was removed using an endoscope, snaking the scope down the mouth and esophagus so the garland could be grasped with a special tool and removed from the stomach. Nicholas was uncomfortable for a few days while his esophagus and stomach healed up, but he recovered and is doing fine.

 

Other holiday hazards for dogs include:

 

  • Spray on snow/flocking, foil, plastic wrap/shrink-wrap, Styrofoam peanuts.
  • XMAS Tree Food/Preservatives: If you are using a real tree in a plant stand, cut off access to the stand with a heavy tree skirt. Veterinarians at VRCC say sugar-based tree preservatives and tree food/water can harbor dangerous bacteria and a thirsty dog may decide to use the tree stand as a drinking bowl.
  • Batteries: It may be great to have batteries for that new, cool toy but chewing or swallowing batteries is extremely toxic. Acid burns from chewing and causing a leak in the battery are common as well as cuts from the metal casing.
  • Potpourri: The spicy smell can fill the house with a wonderful scent, but dogs can experience irritation and corrosion of the eyes, mouth, throat and esophagus if exposed to the liquid form.

Hopefully, these valuable emergency room tips from VRCC will help keep you and your entire family safe and happy this holiday season.
